Bideford Dog Artist


It has been such a lovely week of weather in Littleham near Bideford, and Binny our Border Terrier has been on lots of lovely dog walks.  It is difficult sometimes to get into “artist work” mode when the weather is so lovely.  Even working part time, which I am lucky I can do.

This new painting is of a very handsome and proud Golden Retriever and his name is Bentley.  Commissioned as a surprise combined anniversary gift and the recipients were over the moon!

Bentley according to his owners has a characteristic being “that look” which was commented I had achieved perfectly.  For me it is really important to see the individual character and concentrate on getting it right.  

This breed of dog lends itself so well for photography and painting.

What exactly are pastels?

A soft pastel is typically in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder to hold it all together. The pigments used in pastels are the same as those used to produce other art mediums, including oil paints, so not much different. The colour effect of pastels is closer to the natural dry pigments than any other medium, which sometimes gets you that soft colour everyone raves about. Perfect for Pet Portrait Paintings!
